Maryland basketball is off to a strong 3-0 start to the 2018-2019 campaign. The Terps will host the Hofstra Pride in the second game of a six-game home-stand on Friday night.
Most recently, Maryland defeated the North Carolina A&T Aggies by a commanding score of 82-59. The Terps led 49-25 at halftime and took the game by a landslide. Bruno Fernando tallied a double-double and led Maryland with 17 points and 12 rebounds. He also shot 70 percent from the field en route to a big victory.
Maryland had five players score in double figures in Fernando, Anthony Cowan Jr., Darryl Morsell, Jalen Smith and Aaron Wiggins. Wiggins had his best game of the season, scoring 14 points and adding four rebounds and four assists. He also made four three-pointers in the contest.
Now, Maryland looks to dominate another mid-major team in the Hofstra Pride. The Pride are off to a 2-1 start to the year with wins over Mount St. Mary’s and NC A&T. They are coming off a 20-point blowout over the Aggies, who Maryland beat by 23. Lamar Johnson has the full preview.
